Our favorite shirt designer is of course Thomsen. Alix Thomsen has made a name of herself by reinventing the shirt. Classical yet original, a bit dandy, but always casual, the Thomsen shirt is an everyday must-have. Alix Thomsen answers to our portrait.
Who are you?
Alix Thomsen, before launching my label, I worked for Chloé and Lacoste.
How did you start in fashion?
On my first day of college, I started to exist in front of the eyes of the others simply because I did my best effort to dress nicely. I understood the social power of clothing on what others think of you. It was a great way of communicating at a time when I was rather shy. Little by little, I started to know myself and to find myself in clothing. Naturally, I became a stylist.
